The Temple Owls welcome the University of Connecticut to Lincoln Financial Field on a beautiful Saturday afternoon.
UConn (2-10) came out balls to the wall and gained a 14-0 edge with a 51 yard Jack Zergiotis strike to Ardell Brown followed by a Stov Krajewski 2 yard scamper.
Anthony Russo fired a strike to Brandon Mack on a 61-yard pass and catch to close it 14-7. The first quarter closed with Temple trailing.
Clayton Harris answered with a 40-yard field goal to push the lead to 17-7 in favor of UConn.
Todd Centerio hit Jaden Blue on a ten-yard passing play to close the half with the Owls trailing, 17-14.
Whatever was said in the locker room worked as Temple stormed out and scored four TDS in the third quarter supplied by a Russo 41 yard TD pass to Branden Mack, followed by Russo bootlegging for eight yards, Re’Hahn Davis scampering for a 55 yard marker and Sam Franklin returning an interception 20 yards to blow the contest open.
Payton Ruley supplied the final tally with a six-yard run to cement the 49-17 Temple win.
